    Dr Hoffman didn't listen to me say I do not want to take birth control for Management again. I have already tried that and it does nothing but cause harm and make my symptoms even worse. He only cared about pushing medicine and won't do a hysterectomy unless I take medicine. I am going to a new Dr away from his practice.

    Doctor had already made up his mind is about how my treatment option would be. Also would not listen to what option I want/need.

      I have nothing but the best experience with Dr.Hoffman. He makes things easier for me to understand and truly makes sure I understand what is going on along with risks and such. I've never had a Doctor do that for me. He definitely put my mind at ease knowing the steps in my health plan and actually helping me understand.

      This was a follow-up visit schelded by another provider who left UK who had done a bx. Dr. Hoffman said that I didn't need follow-up and the other provider had misinterpreted the ultrasound findings. He is much more experienced than the one who left and I I felt very comfortable with his explanation.

      Dr. Hoffman was excellent at putting me at ease and took his time answering my many questions. He never made me feel rushed or stupid for asking a question and answered all my questions very compentently. I liked that he gave me his full attention and made me feel like I was a valued part of decision-making.

      If I could give higher scores than 5's, I would. I've honestly never been so impressed by a doctor. He really took the time to truly listen to my concerns and explain everything thoroughly. He was very kind, caring, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable. I got everything out of this appointment that I was looking for, and more. I would highly recommend Dr. Hoffman to anyone who has female reproductive organs. Just fantastic! I can't speak highly enough about how impressed I was by this appointment & even all the front desk staff & nurses. Thank you!!

      I can assure you the majority of my health issues is not female related. I feel this is another rabbit hole we are going down. I will never fit in your textbook to diagnose me. The tumor is staring at you all! The pieces all fit for me now.
